The Measure of the Magic: Legends of Shannara

The Measure of the Magic: Legends of Shannara - Terry Brooks An average Shannara novel. It isn't as bad as the High Druid trilogy (which, I'm sorry, I hated) but never reaches even the heights of Bearers of the Black Staff. It feels a bit rushed and the overall thought at the end of the book was "...why this story?" - it all just feels a bit superfluous, unnecessary. But even an average Shannara novel is worth the escape it provides. It might be comfortable and well-worn, but that's not necessary a bad thing in the right mood.More thoughts on the measure of this most recent magic at Raging Biblioholism: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-hi
